Never put important, fragile or valuable objects (jewelry, computers, camera) or liquids in the suitcase that could spill and ruin your clothes. The best option is to place them inside the luggage but in covers specially designed to protect them.

It is forbidden to carry the following products in hand luggage: aerosols, corrosives, flammables, lighters, sharp objects and all kinds of liquids such as gels, drinks, creams, toothpaste, cosmetics or deodorants.

When depositing the luggage at the airline counter, verify that the information on the labels placed is correct, in case of error it may be sent to the other side of the world.

Never neglect your luggage, do not leave it alone or in the care of unknown people. At airports you have to be very careful because misunderstandings are taken advantage of by thieves.
